Lost in the Woods Discussion

DriftingEpyon on I turn Around and Find... I am Lost in the Woods!

Good point with Skyshroud Claim! I have added it to the list.

I am trying to maintain at least 80 forests in the deck, and Coat of Arms and Gaea's Anthem are just "win more" cards that don't actually help us pull off our strategy. The same goes for Garruk Wildspeaker.

I would stay away from Awakening since it allows everyone to untap their creatures and lands and encourages everyone to be more aggressive; unless we have Lost in the Woods on the field, this deck simply will not be able to withstand a beating that would bring on. Seedborn Muse and Helix Pinnacle are great additions though if you can afford them! Thank you for the suggestions! :D

Lhurgyof I feel like Lost in the Woods wouldn't be as strong as some other options since I have so few forests. I have not thought of it though and will have to play around with it. Sylvan Library , yeah :D I also think an Staff of Domination would go well

I love me some non-blue control decks.

Have you thought of Lost in the Woods as a pillowfort card?

You probably already know, but Sylvan Library would be killer in here.

Sashan, Arbor Optimum

Legendary Planeswalker: Sashan

+2: Search your library for a Forest. You may put that card into play tapped, or on top of your Library.

-3: Creatures can't attack you or planeswalkers you control this turn unless that creature's control pays for each Forest you control, for each attacking creature.

-5: Add to your mana pool for each forest you control.


Sashan, Arbor Optimum can be your commander

This is meant to facilitate a deck based around Lost in the Woods . Sashan in a power Dryad that thrives in the dense forest.

New Planeswalker Wildcard!

Should be 59 Forest to improve your odds of drawing Lost in the Woods IMO.

I also thought of this! I was more a Fan of Constant Mists myself due to later game taxing. im not 100% sure its broken to a point due to the 5 mana wait. Talk about 5 turns of nothing. So things I'll probably run will be a little ramp so that I have little blockers for early like the new Arboreal Grazer . Maybe even with so many lands in the deck running Lost in the Woods as a way of never getting hit at all.

I ran Lost in the Woods in an earlier rendition of the deck and dropped it due to the inconsistency and constantly losing good cards to the bottom of my library.

I'm considering doing a build with Dosan the Falling Leaf , so Spike Weaver and Fade into Antiquity could definitely find spots.

Night Soil is interesting and I might play around with it. The upside to Scavenging Ooze is the potential lifegain and it can target noncreature cards. We have a Bruna deck that runs rampant some games and taking out a crap ton of enchantments out of that graveyard has been awesome.

Predator, Flagship is kinda neat, but really mana intensive, so I doubt it'll find a home here.

I do like Arena and will playtest it though. Thanks for the suggestions!

Love khamal. best wrath insurance green can buy.

"I cast Wrath of God !"

"I animate all your lands."


"one sided Armagedon isn't too funny, is it?"

odd card options you may not have considered:

Lost in the Woods provides recurring fog effect (although not consistantly), along with giving some tuck as needed

Spike Weaver + Forgotten Ancient offers a legged fog engine that replenishes itself

Fade into Antiquity may be slower than instant speed, but it exiles instead of tucking

Night Soil exiles as part of the cost, meaning that the creature removal cannot be responded to.

Predator, Flagship is a good colorless creature removal engine, and Arena is one of my mono green deck's MVPs
